homestead down in florida. there were parts of new jersey and long island that look like that. >> not nearly the size -- houses down there were $150,000 a piece. the homes that were destroyed up here were millions of dollars a piece. >> that's what i'm saying. it's much more money. >> the other difference is in new york there's not a lot of moral hazard that you worry about in the sense of people weren't building homes in the wrong places. >> a terrific comment. there had not been a storm there in decades and decades and decades. it's another thing in florida on the coast. there were counties i found along north carolina that have fema money on top of fema money from the prior storm on top of fema money. that's not the case in new york. >> three storms hit new york in 1954. all of them twice as big as the one that just hit three in one year. >> i don't want to give you a nodule but people are making a leap with global warming thing. it may be true. i don't think there's evidence of it. >> i tell you, it's our living in sin that's bringing on all this weather. >> that we know to be tru

did not get polled including florida and just saying one party figured it out. the other party didn't. >> if you look at individual stocks and sectors, yesterday you got at the point where you go by sector and not risk on, risk off broader mark. we see that here. financials are seeing softness in pre-market. coal stocks seeing softness. there is a notion that now there will be more reimbursement for patients who previously couldn't pay for their care and so that will be a huge tail wind for these stocks which goes to buy from neutral this morning. >> a couple guys piled on hca. i do feel that you're supposed to sell the medical devices because there's a tax on them. things are playing out the way we would expect. i do think that the market is not understanding the power of what bernanke is doing in housing because you would get the firing of bernanke very quickly, okay, and you're not going to get that now. he's obviously contributed. the rates are down any way. i just think that if you bought bank of america because you thought romney was going to win and that was your reason to buy

certainly true in california. it's true in florida. it's true in paris. >> bob, the last time we talked, you seemed passionate about the need to fix our debt as a country. i wonder what your take is on president obama winning re-election. does that change anything for the company, for the industry? in terms of this fiscal cliff, everybody is expecting taxes to go higher. we're not sure how high on dividends and capital gains. will that dictate your behavior in terms of disney's payout, your dividend? >> well, first of all, i think i was most passionate when we last talked about the change in the corporate tax rate where we are the highest in the world right now. i don't think that makes this country competitive. i think it's a real impediment to true growth. so i'm very passionate about addressing that, not only reducing the rate, but in order to do so, i think certain loopholes have to get closed as well in order to make this country far more competitive. i think that's very important. i've seen some very compelling statistics about what a 10% drop in the corporate tax rate would do in
